Purpose: In this study, we aimed at determining the dynamic thiol/disulfide homeostasis and oxidant balance, and investigating the relation of these parameters to the severity of the disease and the serum calcium levels.
Material and method: 55 patients with iatrogenic hypoparathyroidism follow-ups, and 40 healthy volunteers were included in the study. The blood dynamic thiol/sulfide balance, Total Antioxidant Status (TAS), Total Oxidant Status (TOS), Paraoxonase Enzyme Activity (PON) levels were measured in serum samples.
Findings: In our study, it was found that the disulfide, disulfide/native thiol, disulfide/total thiol levels were higher in the hypoparathyroidism group. A negative correlation was found between 25 hydroxy vitamin D (25 OH vitamin D) and disulfide, disulfide/native thiol and disulfide/total thiol, and a positive correlation was found between native thiol and total thiol ratio; and the corrected calcium levels and PON levels were negatively correlated.
Discussion: Consequently, a change in favor of disulfide was found in the dynamic thiol disulfide homeostasis in the hypoparathyroidism group in our study.
